Big Cat Race

As much as I enjoyed all the great educational apps I have been recommending, I have always hoped to find apps that can get kids outside of house and running.  Apps for star gazing, bird watching, remotely monitor helicopter, or even math games involving walking around, are all my favorite apps.  Today I am going to recommend an app that will really get kids moving.  It is called Big Cat Race. What the app does is to set up a… Read More

Albert: Free Mini-game collection

Albert is a collection of 20 mini games.  The first 10 games are free.  From turning off an array of alarm clocks to help Albert sleep more, to moving the slippery soap to the bathtub so Albert can have a bath, to calling the dog to stop before he steps over the cliff, … all games are creatively designed with ingenious use of the device's functions, such as touchscreen, accelerometer, or microphone. In addition to the games, I really like… Read More

Rainbow Sentences

I had readers asking about Rainbow Sentences App.  I contacted Mobile Education Tools, who developed the app, and received a copy of the app.  After reviewing the app, I was really impressed by the design – no matter it is the picture, or the choices of the sentences, or the lesson style. Rainbow Sentences’ target users are kids who have difficulties following traditional teaching methods, and those (kids or adults) who are learning English as a second language.  It is… Read More

FotopediaNationalParksApp

How to Manage In-App Purchase? post image

While looking at the App store Top Grossing list, I was quite surprised to see Dragon Vale was at the top as #1.  I was surprised because Dragon Vale is a free app.  In fact the top 5 grossing apps are all free apps.  How can they make money?  Obviously, these free apps get money through In-App Purchase.  This sends a strong message to all app buyers, especially all the parents: free apps are NOT free, be aware of the In-App… Read More
